A bit more of a Nemesis presence in the valley,i mean when Sub Terra opens having some more tenicles reaching out of the ground and stuff. and make Nemesis blink and roar every now and then would really add a living sense then.

Ripsaw to have a audio track would be nice. And the saws back, im not fussy about the rest like the electrodes and stuff ,just the saws. it is Ripsaw after all.

A general cleanup of the Oblivion queue and to have the videos in the station sync with the dispatch.

A massive B&M Hyper, 50 more flat rides, the height restrictions to be removed and lighting on all major coasters, plus I want free food because I own a MAP, then Perks everytime I arrive at the park, things like fast track and a free coffee.

What? You said it was an Enthusiast Wishlist, I had no idea it was serious  :lol:

I would like to see the cars on Sonic Spinball to be painted to match the characters on the side of the cars. so it would be like:

Sonic - Blue
Tails - Orange or Yellow
Amy Rose - Pink
Knuckles - Red
Dr.Eggman - Not sure, maybe black?

wouldn't cost that much

Considering they can't be bothered to do touch-ups around the theme park, I don't think they will do this as it's too much work! :P

I do think themed cars would be a good idea, but the sponsorship runs out soon and we don't know what will happen to the ride, so I think it's best to use the money for other repaints,
*Cough* Oblivion Air TH13TEEN CATCF and the rest of the park *Cough*

This is the last season of the deal, do you really think SEGA are going to pay for it now and not back in 2010? :P

Alton charge for wi-fi at the hotels so it wouldn't surprise me if theme park wi-fi will cost. I could see it being something along the lines of having to go to guest services to obtain a password to gain access for how ever long you wish to use it for. Not sure if many people would use it or not, depends on the price of it I suppose.


Just checked into the hotels and a pleasant suprise... wifi is free!

Unsure when they did this, you have to enter your email address for 24 hours access, i would assume you can re-enter after that.

I now have my phone and tablet connected using same email so it's made the stay rather better and will be posting pics etc to facebook giving a bit of publicity to the hotels

Good move finally i say :-)

I last visited the hotels in April 2011, wifi cost back then and it has been an add on cost for years - much to the reason why I never take my laptop to the hotels because I know it'll cost to get on the internet.

Very good to hear it's free now, though. Great move by the team at the hotels. :)

I think it's only gone free in the last few weeks.

Wi-fi is becoming more and more common, and I think we're getting to the point where it's so ubiquitous that customers would be very surprised if it's not free, like other basic services (water). Wi-fi is becoming a basic service and is cheaper to run than ever, it's a good thing!

On the last day of the beach party I was reading the notices in the reception and it said wi fi was free. However I have no idea how long its been free.

Glad it is. People can check into the resort easier = free advertising for the resort

There were rumours of wi fi across the park this year, I wonder if this will be free?

That would be a good idea because people could use their phones and look at the map, therefore reducing the amount of maps thrown on the floor.

Knowing Alton, it'll most likely occur some kind of charge, but to be honest, I wouldn't want to connect to a Public Network which could be openly used by thousands of people a day. It's just too easy -unless the information is encrypted- to obtain personal information. And I'm sure people would abuse this privilege.

You're forgetting that the purpose of the Alton map isn't for navigation, but in the hope that people will keep it and it'll be free advertising for them. That's why it's so totally useless as a map but beautiful, Alton want people to take home paper copies. :)

Installing parkwide WiFi would be incredibly expensive. Unless they could monetize it then it's incredibly unlikely they would ever do that.

However thanks to YourGay they do have a nice parkwide fibre optic network just begging to be put to use, it could easily provide the backbone for a WiFi system.

At the end of the day though it doesn't really add anything to the park experience. Unless they decided to be innovative with phone apps and stuff.

I just can't see it having much use. If you're at a theme park and are more interested in browsing then should you really be at a theme park?

Yeah, but most TTF meet internet action that's actually on park is done on phones-which usually have their own internet and don't need wifi.

I can't imagine wifi being parkwide-the general public won't fancy lugging a laptop/ipad around the park, due to risks of it getting broken, nicked when on rides. The water rides don't even have proper storage area, you just leave it on the side!
